    I took a muffler off a old 10hp Briggs and modified it a little and put it on the 552 (has a K181 Kohler). I do need to brace it. But I am not sure I like how it looks. What do you guys think. It is quiet lol

    Batteries; Your Thoughts?

    I just had a everstart quit on me last night. But it wasn't batterys fault had a short in tractor and battery got cooked

    Batteries; Your Thoughts?

    I use everstart mainly. Key to getting a battery to last is regular use even in winter we had a couple last over 5 years. Just like in a car you use it everyday and look how they last. Not saying you have to run your tractors everyday at least once a week. One of the batterys that lasted 5 years was stored outside and my dad never done any maintenance to it.

    502 restoration

    That's odd. Sometimes I only seen it maybe once or twice but 502s were taken back to dealer to have electric start put on. I was going to transfer electric start to the h70 I stuck on 552 but looked into the charging system and decided against it due to chance of overcharging battery. That and lack of governor response compared to a kohler. Pretty bad when a 1958 k160 kohler that smokes on my 753 over powers a 7hp Tec. Those were my 2 reasons I swapped in a kohler. Now the 502 on other hand I got a 8hp Kohler magnum pull start engine and stuck it on it my dad loved it.
